This is a revised and updated edition of Dawn Ade's single-volume study of Salvador Dali's work. What accounts for his popularity as an artist? Is it the accessibility of his imagery or his talent as a self-publicist? This book considers questions raised by the Dali phenomenon. His early years, the development of his technique and style, his relationship with the Surrealists, his exploitation of Freudian ideas, and the image which Dali created of himself as the mad genius artist are all explored in this text.

Almost half Dalí's illustrations in this book have rarely been seen
This publication presents in 2 volumes in a box the entire painted oeuvre of Salvador Dalí (1904-1989). After many years of research, Robert Descharnes and Gilles Néret finally located all the paintings of this highly prolific artist. Many of the works had been inaccessible for years - in fact so many that almost half the illustrations in this book have rarely been seen.
